The impact of a donation to CCV is lasting and directly affects students’ ability to access higher education and to succeed in their educational goals. Whether you donate to a local Student Assistance Fund, which supports students with textbook or transportation costs, or to the Endowment for Student Success, supporting CCV students of the future, every dollar you give makes it possible for CCV students to attend college.
CCV’s annual fund is an opportunity for alumni, friends, faculty, staff and students to contribute to the overall mission of CCV by providing unrestricted resources for new initiatives as well as a variety of operational needs and projects.

General Scholarship Fund
Every dollar given to this fund goes directly to tuition assistance for students.
Life Gap Grants
Gifts to Life Gap support grants to help students bridge challenging situations and emergent needs that threaten their ability to continue in their studies and stay in school.
Student Assistance Fund
From fixing a tire so a student can get to class, to buying a much-needed textbook, every dollar to this fund provides direct support to students. This fund is used to assist students at each CCV location to meet compelling and urgent financial needs.
Endowment for Student Success
This fund supports deserving students whose chances of success can be strengthened by aid and whose needs are not met by other sources.
Endowment for Life Gap Grants
Established in 2020 in honor of CCV’s 50th anniversary, this endowment is intended to sustain long-term support for Life Gap Grants to CCV students.
Earning an associate degree is often only the beginning for CCV students. At graduation every year, CCV honors students who are continuing on to earn their bachelor’s degree with a scholarship award sent directly to the four-year college where they matriculate.
Named Endowment Funds
CCV has a number of established named endowment funds that support scholarship awards to students. Often these funds are in memory of a beloved member of the CCV community. Named endowments may be established at CCV with a minimum initial gift of $25,000.
The President’s Scholarship was established to honor students who exhibit sustained academic excellence in their educational journey at CCV.
Study Abroad Fund
Gifts to this fund help students access the life-changing experience of travel through CCV’s Study Abroad Program. Help students develop a fuller and more diverse perspective of their studies and the world, cultivate cultural competency, and enhance career opportunities. These gifts directly reduce course fees involved with studying abroad.
Endowment for Teaching and Learning
This endowment provides a source of discretionary funding to support both new and ongoing academic programs.
Founder’s Fund for CCV
A permanent, unrestricted endowment, created to be as flexible as the College itself in meeting needs and supporting innovations that promote the CCV mission.
This scholarship is designed to honor former and current CCV faculty and staff members whose work for the College has benefited students, faculty, and co-workers in substantial and meaningful ways. Each year, one or more current or former faculty and staff members will be identified.
